Brooks was elected as NYSAC second vice president in 2013, where she’s served for the past two years.
Throughout her term, she advocated for reforming mandated state spending, county officials stated.
In 2011, the organization also awarded her the Excellence in Leadership Award, “in recognition of her efforts to promote Monroe County’s long-term care solutions for residents,” officials said.
NYSAC is an 85-year-old bi-partisan municipal association that represents all of New York’s 62 counties, including New York city, and its five boroughs. The organization provides education, training and research on public policy to federal, state, and local officials, and to the membership on issues important to counties.
“It is an honor to serve New York’s counties through this important leadership post,” Brooks said. “NYSAC has a proven record of offering practical solutions to our state’s biggest challenges, and I look forward to serving an organization that truly understands what counties need in these economic times.”
